Author Notes

Inspired by my mother-in-law, who is of Lebanese decent, she would serve this with lamb kabobs and homemade labneh and pita bread. Most salads would not make good leftovers, but even though the lettuce gets soggy, the tanginess of the lemony dressing makes it delicious. I recommend serving it with pita bread, so you can sop up all that tangy goodness. —Shane N Rebecca Whitlatch
